DIRECTOR: TERRY ZWIGOFF
CAST: BILLY BOB THORNTON, TONY COX, BERNIE MAC, JOHN RITTER
In this holiday standard, Thornton plays an alcoholic, grab-assy safecracker who makes his living by posing as a mall Santa once a year and then making off with the accumulated Christmas-season loot. Zwigoff’s filthy-funny lowbrow laff riot evokes both Redd Foxx and The Little Rascals. With snot-nosed Thurman Merman, the least-lovable scamp of all-time, and the dream team of Tony Cox, Bernie Mac, and John Ritter.
Screening as a part of Holidays at Metrograph.
